Configuring display settings

 

To configure settings in the Displays Settings dialog box:

  1. On the ribbon, click Settings tab > General Settings > Displays.
  2. Change desired settings.
  3. Click OK.

The Displays Settings tab contains the following sections and settings:

  • Control Display.  Select which monitor will be used as the control screen. Click the field to reveal a list of all monitors attached to the computer and recognized by Windows or Mac OS.
  • Main Display - This option is available when MediaShout is in dual screen mode. To enable dual-screen mode, click the Settings tab and in the Displays group, select 2 Screens or press CTRL+ALT+ 2 (CMD+OPTION+2 on Mac). Select which monitor will be used as the main display screen (the one the audience sees). Click the field to reveal a list of all monitors attached to the computer and recognized by Windows.
    • Monitor.
    • Current Display Resolution. This read-only field tells you the current resolution of the selected monitor.
    • Keep on top. Select this option to ensure that the presentation display output appears full-screen and on top of any other application window that opens onto this screen.
    • Minimize with application. When this option is selected, minimizing MediaShout on the control screen also hides its output on the main display screen. If you need to minimize the application without interrupting the presentation to the audience, clear this option.
    • Hide mouse on Main Display. Select this option to prevent the mouse pointer from appearing on the presentation display screen. Selecting Web Pages allows the mouse pointer to show when clicking links and controls appearing on the presentation display.
    • Shrink Output on Main Display. For TVs and monitors that overscale the image outside the viewing area, use this setting to select the correct scale to make the image fit inside the screen.
    • Enable Multi-Output Mode. Select when using hardware such as TripleHead2Go to display lyrics on the left, center, or right third of the screen or any combination thereof. You can also set the background to tile for each screen independently, or stretched across all three screens.
      • Mode. Select Dual or Triple.
      • BG. Select tile or stretch.
      • Output Selection. Select the output location for Background (when in Tile mode), Main Text, and Media Objects. Note: Normally, Output 1 is left, Output 2 is right (in Dual mode) or center (in Triple mode), and Output 3 is right (in Triple mode).
  • Stage Display - This option is available when MediaShout is in triple screen mode. To enable triple-screen mode, click the Settings tab and in the Displays group, select 3 Screens or press CTRL+ALT+3 (CMD+OPTION+3 on Mac). Select which monitor will be used as the stage display screen (the one seen by people on the stage). Click to reveal a list of all monitors attached to the computer and recognized by Windows or Mac OS.
  • For additional options, follow the instructions for the Presentation Display options listed above.

To exit 2 or 3 screen mode, use CTRL+ALT+1 (CMD+OPTION+1 on Mac) to return to single screen mode.

See the Quick Start Guide: Setting up the displays for information about required hardware for using a stage display.
